" I didn't know what I wanted to do…"
One of my favorite summer reads that I tend to keep picking up over and over again is, The Woman I Wanted to Be, by Diane Von Furstenberg. Some of you may know about my obsession with DVF, as I often post about her in our style section.I don't know about you, but I love a great inspirational book and Diane Von Furstenberg is more than inspiring. Her book is empowering and relatable. The book is honest and genuine to her truth as a successful business woman, mother and philanthropist. In some regards, I believe her honesty was the aspect I appreciated most about the book. Her driven success, her failed marriage, her dating life to her ups and down in business all felt so real. To be such a strong and successful women through it all is what inspires me. In all honesty, I could not put the book down. I was so engulfed in her stories from her life as a young woman traveling and attending extravagant parties to her times at Studio 54 in New York City. DVF is a boss. She is a woman of power, hard work, and determination to not only be successful but to empower other women as well. I don't only admire her success, I admire her truths. Her honest opinions about life, love, and family are what really caught my attention because, in the end, love and family are all that really matters.
To finish the quote that I live by on a daily basis, DVF says, " I didn't always know what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be." AMEN!
As I mentioned before, I love inspirational reads, please comment below if you know of any amazing books I should be reading next. Also, I would love to hear about the women you admire.
